Ready For 100% Renewable Energy - Sierra Club Initiative

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Group (SPG), part of the Pennsylvania Chapter of the Sierra Club, is focused on the environmental issues facing the greater Philadelphia area. Our Sierra Club volunteers from Philadelphia, Delaware, Chester, Montgomery and Bucks counties are working together to maintain and improve the natural resources of the area and protect it for generations to come. Our mission: Explore, Enjoy and Protect theSolar Energy For All Planet, is the root of every project we undertake.

SPG Executive Committee meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 6:15pm at City CoHo at 2401 Walnut St in Philadelphia, 6:15pm. The entrance is on the parking lot side of the building - at the end of Sansom St.

The goal of the Ready For 100% Renewable Energy Campaign is to encourage Pennsylvania’s cities and towns to make a pledge to complete the transition to 100% renewable energy. 

Yes, we need state and federal solutions too, but we are not waiting. Cities and townships are taking action. Many cities in the US have made the pledge to make the switch to clean, renewable energy. Most cities are pledging to achieve 100% renewable electricity by as soon as 2030 (and no later than 2035) and 100% of all remaining energy (industry, transportation, heating/cooling) by 2045. 

Let's add Philadelphia  and our boroughs and townships to this list!  We can create this change in a way that is equitable and sustainable for our communities.

Our RF100 volunteers are organizing to make this happen.
